Bikes guns and shine
 
Bikes, guns and shine, what could possibly go wrong?

Advtenn and I (rabbot) headed out from ETN and WNC respectively, for WestFest followed by RMAR.
Two tigers, couple of hand guns and some of Tennessee's finest sipping whiskey.
Nothing much happened today but we are only twelve hours into this.

Going to try and post some pictures here in a minute. This is all being done on a smart phone please bear with

Before Pikes peak
 
So after driving for hours in "Level land" we ended up at Mac's and was quick to jump on the bikes for a shake down ride.

Ok, now its time to hit the road. I think if Rob could find a way to put that "Green egg" on his bike, he would.:lol3 Look at the size of that air matress:eek1.

Sleeping single in a double bed.........

Funny

It's made by a company called Jack's Plastic Welding. It's called a Paco Pad.
a) I've gone around the world with it.
b) I recommend one to anyone who wants a good nights sleep outdoors.
c) It doubles as a camp lounger and a life raft should the need arise.

Given how much it rained on this trip I was glad to have it. See point "b"
